Hafta 456: Arab nations and Israel, Cricket World Cup 2023

The podcast where we discuss the news of the week.

WrittenBy:NL Team

This week on NL Hafta, Newslaundry’s Manisha Pande, Raman Kirpal and Anand Vardhan are joined by independent journalist Rohan Venkat and senior sports journalists Sharda Ugra and Chander Shekhar Luthra.

On cricket and the 2023 World Cup, Manisha brings up audience behaviour, like ultra-patriotic chants during the match against Pakistan, and whether this event suffers from poor management. Sharda describes how the World Cup’s being conducted in a shabby way for fans, while Shekhar explains issues with attendance.

Rohan then talks about the Israel-Palestine violence in the context of the Arab world – the familial connections it has with Palestinians and the existential question of people from Gaza being pushed into Egypt.

Tune in.
